Scores: Vampires 3.5.23 Def by Murrumbeena 5.3.33
Despite being hit by injury in the days before the game and having other challenges on the day, the boys battled admirably in the hotly contested top of the table clash. Our skippers led from the front, with Jem in every pack and marking strongly, and Caalan repelling opposition attacks constantly, supported as always by Zac.
Whilst we peppered the goals with the wind, we couldn’t finish cleanly enough to convert our opportunities and score to reward the hard at the ball efforts by Kai, Tal, Sonny and Oscar. Conversely, the silky skills of Shaun Burgoyne’s son Ky hurt us again as he converted 3 excellent goals from long range.
Nevertheless, the boys have had a great season that sees us finish second on the ladder and ready to take on the finals. With a stronger attack at the ball and more run and carry, we will be a serious contender.
Big thanks also to Christopher, Gus and Tom from the u12’s for helping us out today.
